Grace Kelly's Hair Test

By midmorning,
everyone was dazed
and lethargic from the oily sugar
of the doughnuts whose crumbs
dotted the surface of the rickety
card table. Thanks, Doughnut Castle.
When we went out to fetch Grace
and help her into her dressing room,
she was despondent, having spent
the better part of the day
playing an out of tune banjo
owned by none other than
Phil Ochs. I'll always have you,
I said, and I meant it.
